It's a close finish over the line in a race at Doncaster Racecourse.

The William Hill St Leger Festival

We are proud to play host to one of the most prestigious race weeks of the British horse racing calendar, the William Hill St. Leger Festival. You can enjoy a unique blend of history, top-class horse racing and fabulous live entertainment during the four-day September extravaganza.

St Leger Legends Day

The Festival kicks off with a bang when retired celebrities of the saddle dust off their breeches and return to action in the feature event competing in the charity race, a contest run on the straight mile. The Leger Legends race helps raise money for the Northern Racing College and Jack Berry House, a rehabilitation facility for injured jockeys.
